North East England Car Sales : 2017

The Nissan Leaf made in the NE. Many end up in nearby Norway

The UK as a whole was down 6% but here was worse at -9%. Last year the NE went down when the country as a whole was up. It shows the disparity in wealth between regions is growing and the NE is on the losing end. The gap has always been there, the fact that it's widening unacceptable.

No one brand is dominating but Ford passed Vauxhall as the latter imploded. A notable disappointment was Nissan as they have a large factory in this region, which is a major employer. I don't know why loyalty and British have to be two words that are mutually exclusive.

The data source covers twelve regions across the UK, the top 30 as below is for the UK as a whole. Each regions sales from that collective top 30 is then given. There may be one or two brands that would otherwise be in a top 30 but are missing from a region because not every region will have the same top 30.
